Indulge yourself on a cycle tour that caters for moderate to advanced cyclist with optional cycling distances designed to suit each level of experience. This tour offers generous amounts of time for sight seeing and enjoying the attractions the Great Ocean Road offers.

"What a great way to see one of Australia's most scenic stretches of road. It would be a shame not to have the time to take it all in and our cycle tour allowed us to slow down and just enjoy it. Accommodations were very well chosen and the food was remarkable."
